India vs New Zealand, ICC World Cup 2023: Prediction

The clash between India and New Zealand is going to be one of the most interesting matches of the ICC World Cup 2023. Indian fans will be a little bit hesitant as New Zealand defeated India in the ICC World Cup 2019 semi-final. But, this is a different Team India we are talking about which has shown absolute class this World Cup season.

New Zealand had a great start to their World Cup campaign, but they faced back-to-back four defeats with their qualification under the clouds at one point. We think the side winning the toss will have a clear advantage, but even if the Rohit Sharma-led squad has to bowl first, our pacers have shown the ability to keep great batters under tight leash and keep the run rate in control.

This is going to be a high-scoring big match after which India will emerge victorious and become the first finalist of the ICC World Cup 2023.
